Mike mentioned the other day that, unfortunately, Annie’s Kitchen in Accident will be closing as the owner is retiring. There is a silver lining as Rolling Pin Bakery has announced they will be moving into the space along Main Street. YUM … I’m drooling thinking about their fresh donuts now …
Also, Fast Cash Grantsville will be opening in early April. Located in the Grantsville plaza.
A reminder for those visiting us from outside of Maryland: Our state government has said that masks are required in public settings indoors and recommended when gathering with people outside of your household. For more information, see Masks on Maryland.
Although the Closure 1 and 2 put-and-take trout fishing areas are closed until March 27, the Closure 0 areas continue to be stocked with trout. Most of these trout waters are lakes and ponds and they are getting generous stockings. The ponds offer safe and easy access for our younger anglers, and some are set aside for their exclusive use. Be sure to check the trout stocking website to see the areas stocked this week.
